The Still Trees

Andrei and Sergei Cosma – Forest of Romania

The silence and stillness of the trees.
They stand strong, roots firmly anchored to the ground.
From the earth they grow,
Towards the endless skies above.

I love this photograph, it’s beautiful yet eerie because I can sense a stillness (as I’ve written above) yet the trees stand like a colony, they branch out like veins in the sky. The mist or fog seals the air and the trees, it all seems to ephemeral. I adore how the leaves, although dead, are the only source of colour in the photo. I’m not sure why but they remind me of my drawings.
